This challenge -   
ANYTHING GOES with optional twist INLAID DIE CUT
This is my inspiration project for you.
Hope this will give you lots of inspiration.
I started off with a 5.5x5.5 base card.
I layered the front and inside with paper from the ENGLISH GARDEN paper pad
from CRAFT CONSORTIUM
I die cut the 'inlaid die cut' using a die from my stash.
Pretty butterflies and flowers.
I stamped a 'thinking of you' sentiment and die cut it with a banner die.
Finally I placed a blue self adhesive pearl in each corner.
Hope you like what I did and it will inspire you to join in with our challenge.
Remember its an 'Anything Goes' challenge and the 'twist' is always optional.

CHILDS PLAY
Remember to visit us again for our half-way post from Team 2 on 19th of the month. 
This is my DT inspiration for you this time around.
A simple card this time around.
I used a 5.5 square base card and layered the front with a patterened paper - 5-3/8inch square.

SHEEPSKI DESIGNS BLOG CHALLENGE #5 - FEATURE A CREATURE

Well here we are with Challenge #5 for.....
SHEEPSKI DESIGNS BLOG CHALLENGES
The theme for this challenge is....
FEATURE A CREATURE
You can read the rules....
HERE
So here is my DT inspiration for you!
I used Andrea's image 'ROCKET & ROSIE'
You can purchase it
HERE
This is such a cute image and so easy to colour.
I coloured the image with Copics and made the grass and what are supposed to be flowers lol.
I die cut around the image using a 'stitched circle' die. I placed it on top of a pretty patterned paer I layered on the fron of the card. Lastly I stamped a sentiment and cut it out using a 'banner' die.
I used foam tape on the image topper and sentiment banner to give them some dimension.
  I hope you like what I did with the image and it will give you some inspiration.
Thank you for visiting today.

Happy crafting!!
